TV Shows - Twelve O'Clock High (TV series)

Twelve O'Clock High or 12 O'Clock High is an American drama series set in World War II. It aired on ABC for three seasons from September 18, 1964, to January 13, 1967, and was based on the 1949 motion picture of the same name. The series follows the missions of the United States Army Air Force's 918th Bomb Group, equipped with B-17 Flying Fortresses, stationed at Archbury, England. For the first season, many of the characters from the movie were retained, including Brigadier General Frank Savage, Major Harvey Stovall, Major Cobb, Doc Kaiser and General Pritchard, albeit played by different actors than in the movie. In addition to these characters, several other infrequently reappearing characters were introduced, including Captain (later Major) Joseph "Joe" Gallagher, who was in two episodes.

1 This was a great show overall. Even with the switch in stars. The writing was great; top notch quality. The are several things that bug me: the out of date jackets, (the ones which have 50 star flags patches on the right sleeve); reference to the United States Air Force, (which didn't exist until after WWII); and the biggest thing was how Col. Gallagher would "sound off" or "smart back" to his superiors without getting into trouble. It could be that everyone knew that his Dad was a high ranking General but even with this one would think that he would know better. Often times I think that he "came off as a spoiled brat". But again overall a truely good show. Compare this to "today's hit shows" and it's pretty obvious that TV has devolved to depths never imagined. -- Submitted By: (Pete) on May 9, 2013, 3:35 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I'll lay five down that few if any one this site remembers this show (at least in its original run), but along with "Combat," "Garrison's Guerillas" aand "The Rat Patrol," it constituted a series of fairly decent World War II dramas in the mid-1960s. Based on the 1949 film (starring Gregory Peck and Dean Jagger), this program paid homage to the men of the Army Air Corps and the missions they flew over occupied Europe. It was also on of the first Quinn Martin productions and helped the careers of several stars take off, including Paul Burke, Bruce Dern, Edward Mulhare, Tom Skerritt and Andrew Duggan, among others. Also "B-1" Bob Dornan, who starred in "The Starfighters" (A film featured on "Mystery Science Theatre 3000") and later became a U.S. Congressman (before having his last election stolen byllegal aliens), also had a role in the series. -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on July 17, 2009, 3:09 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
